About the Author

Mahmoud Darwish, born in 1941 in the village of al-Birweh, Palestine, was the author of over two dozen volumes of poetry and prose. When he died in the summer of 2008, he was mourned throughout the world as a voice of the Palestinian people--author of their official declaration of independence and, most importantly, a poet of the highest invention and beauty. Mohammad Shaheen is a professor of English at the University of Jordan. Amro Naddy has worked as an editor at the Virginia Quarterly Review. He teaches at the King's Academy in Amman, Jordan.
AMIRA EL-ZEIN is a poet, translator, and Associate Professor of Arabic Literature and Culture at Georgetown University in Qatar. CAROLYN FORCHÉ is the author of four books of poetry, and the editor of two best-selling poetry anthologies, Against Forgetting and Poetry of Witness.
Carolyn Forché has published five books of poems, most recently In the Lateness of the World, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2021. Her works also include translations, anthologies, and a memoir. She is a professor at Georgetown University.
